Dearest June,

People are still talking about Bruno.  His sister says that he didn’t regain consciousness till 8:00 in the morning.  Apparently, it was even more serious than we thought at first.

I had a busy day in the store today with only two of us working.  Joe is filling in for Bruno and may continue working through the weekend.  It looks like I won’t get any more time off this week.

My folks went to a supper at the Hampton Bays church with our minister and his family.  I stayed home tonight and ate my supper alone.

I miss you very much.  Remember me to everybody.  Don’t be too lonesome when you have to ride the subway alone and always be careful.  You know I love you.  Good night, sweetheart,



P.S.  I forgot to tell you – if you should be coming home this weekend, I’m going to a men’s supper at the church Friday night at 6:30.  If you call up and don’t get an answer, you can try my mother at Southampton 951.

Lots of love,


(On Saturday, roommates and weekends.)
